BTW I see you're getting 54 mpg, are you really hyper mileing or are you just getting that driving it easy?

I'd love to hit 50.

Is this just driving normal, not doing super mileage stuff?

i got 58 mpg tanks 2 times in a row wuth my old hx chassis. I can get 47-50 mpg really easilly with no aero mods. when I do all my aero mod stuff ill be getting 55-60 again. yah I looked at the wire diagram and it apears to go through the cruise control but my dx chassis doesnt have that. if you have any swap questions or manual to auto questions lmk. I know alot more then id care to admit about these things lol

My best tank in my hx was 51 mpg all highway with no aero mods

I'm uploading pictures of the shift light mechanism and the plug, I put led lights in my srs and shift light and the modules were identical. So if you have the white plug that looks like the srs plug you should be able to plug it in and have a shift light

Please click thanks next to my post lol

Thanks for sharing the info's!

I have a CRV cluster in my car now so I have a vacant ABS light I can use instead of my cruise light since it does function.

I time the lights the absolute best that I can. If I am half a mile from a light and I do not think I will make it, I EoC. I removed my power steering and have a grill block and air dam. My tires are at 42 PSI. I drive 55 MPH on the freeway.

The hx has neither abs or cruise so I can't comment on those functions. For all I know the shift light could simply be the rpm at which an ex model is able to engage or go into cruise control

I have searched and searched and am probably missing it.

Can someone explain or post a link to installing a "lean burn" indicator?

Thanks!

I am confused by this statement.

Can you clarify for me?

Thanks!
